The winners have been announced for the inaugural The Wee Review Fringe Awards.
As we said when we announced them at the start of the Fringe, the reason behind the awards is not just to reward the Best This and Best That and Most Something-or-other, but to highlight shows that are surprising, ridiculous, unusual, inexplicable, unbelievable, hostile, bizarre or daring in some way. And so the awards go to…
Fringe Zeitgeist Award
The Fringe Zeitgeist Award will be given to the show that best captures the social and political issues of the day.
Fringe Groundbreaker Award
The Fringe Groundbreaker Award will be given to the show that advances perception of what is possible in a performance.
Fringe Experience Award
The Fringe Experience Award will be given to the show that provides the most memorable and extraordinary experience at the Fringe, be it good, bad or plain strange.
Results were announced at 8pm on Sunday 28 August. There are no glittering trophies or cash prizes, as The Wee Review is entirely volunteer run, but winners can take away all the warm, fuzzy feelings you can get your hands on.
